I’ll admit there are more effective options for getting a good cardio workout. I don’t think anything beats the simplicity of a good run. The barrier of entry is low enough that most people can get started right away.
If you wanted to, you could stop reading right this minute and go running. That’s all it takes. For most people who are interested in starting with running, it might seem like a lifestyle that is hard to get on board with. Seeing other people with running equipment and how far they are able to run can make running look tough.
